Five governors, at a school that was controversially closed, have resigned.
In March this year it was announced that St Bees School, in west Cumbria, would be closed because of falling pupil numbers.
The decision proved controversial, and the governors faced fierce criticism from parents of pupils, and campaigners.
The school will remain closed for the next academic year, but a project team set up to analyse the options revealed it could re-open in 2017.

- Mr Anthony Fox
- Mr Shaun Kelso
- Mr Alastair Lord
- Ven Dr Richard Pratt
The Ven. Richard Pratt has been elected as Chairman of the new Board of Governors.
It will include the four new governors, and Mr Mark Roberts (who was newly appointed in March 2015), the Lord Bishop of Carlisle, and the Lord Lieutenant - the latter two being ex officio.
